At Main Street we run a comprehensive programme of activities for our children and young people.
Sunday School and Bible Class run before our Sunday morning service, giving children from primary one all the way through to year twelve the opportunity to learn about God and explore their faith in a structured, but relaxed, manner.
A crèche is available during morning worship services for babies and toddlers, introducing them to the church family and allowing parents to enjoy the service without having to worry about their little ones. For the older children, we recognise that the service can be a little long, so we have a Children’s Church that allows boys and girls in primaries one through four to hear a Bible story and have fun in our church hall. And there’s an activity sheet for the next age group (up to the age of thirteen) that reflects the content of the sermon through puzzles and challenges to make that part of the service a little more fun too.
And there’s plenty to do during the week as well! On Monday evenings we have Junior Bible Club for school children up to year eight.
Our Mums & Tots group meets on a Thursday morning, where tots and their carers are welcome to meet for play and chat.
The Boys Brigade parades in our halls on Thursday and Friday evenings. We also encourage our girls to join the Girls Brigade company, hosted by First Garvagh Presbyterian church, that runs each Friday night.
Our Youth Club welcomes all young people from year 8+ for a full programme of fun and food. On the Sunday of the evening service our H2o Youth Fellowship meets in Café Link at 5.30.
If that wasn’t enough, we run an annual Holiday Bible Club for a week in July. Although it’s aimed mainly at the primary school children, many of our teenagers come along as helpers, learning valuable lessons in service and discipleship in the process.
